Cargill is a worldwide company with headquarters in the Minneapolis area. This alumni story comes from Beck Pryor, ’15, who is an Associate in the Corporate Strategy and Development Group at Cargill. We spoke with Beck about her role and how Chicago Booth changed the way she thinks about the career possibilities ahead. Having worked in places like Ghana, Guatemala, and South Africa prior to Booth, Beck was very interested in the business side of global social impact. Hear how courses she took at Chicago Booth prepared her to navigate ambiguous environments and make sound decisions in a company affected on an international scale by global events and markets.
MBAs in agribusiness are still a somewhat scarce commodity, but Beck says the Booth brand gives her instant credibility and a network that will continue to support her career growth as she moves forward.
